16 Mar Welcome to the Team! Ernie Theriot, Manufacturing Engineer
Help us welcome Ernie Theriot to the M&M Family!
By trade, Ernie is a journeyman machinist and has over 42 years of manufacturing experience. He got his start in 1978 with Cameron Iron Works in Houston and would spend almost his entire career with Cameron. He enrolled in a 3-year machinist apprenticeship in 1980 and finished in 1983. He then relocated to Ville Platte where he developed a 6-week machinist training program for Cameron and he trained 100 people over a 3-year period, while also serving as the machine shop lead. After that he worked as a Manufacturing Technician, working with engineering and the machine shop in developing processes until 1997. Ernie then managed the tool crib as well as the tool & die shop, until becoming a manufacturing engineering, where he would continue to work with engineering and supervise the CNC programming department. He would ultimately become Manufacturing Engineering Manager. In 2005 he relocated back to Houston where he served as Supplier Quality Engineer for Cameron. He traveled abroad to different supplier locations to help the supplier understand how to make Cameron parts. He would eventually serve again as Manufacturing Engineering Manager until 2018. He left to go to work for M&M for a brief period before going back to Cameron Schlumberger in Oklahoma as a Manufacturing Engineering Supervisor. Then came 2020, when the plant closed due to COVID and the downturn. Fortunately, he was able to get an opportunity to work again for M&M and am he is happy to be back with the team.
“I really like the people here at M&M from top to bottom. Everyone has been supportive and I’m very blessed to be a part of this organization. I believe M&M makes a superior quality product and the people here are dedicated to their work.” – Ernie Theriot
